-by-case basis. we spoke to one couple who adopted children and today dozens more arrived in the united states. the latest from jonathan hunt and the assistant secretary of state joins us live in 2 1/2 minutes. ún >> shepard: more from haiti and a update on a story we've been following, a orphanage with over 100 children, some waiting for adopt active parents in the united states are hungry and dehydrated. jonathan hunt has been reporting from the orphanage in port-au-prince and is live with the latest. hi, jonathan. >> reporter: shep, we got word about two hours ago there may be looters targeting this orphanage, the house of the children of god we reported from extensively over the last couple days. we rushed down to see if that was true. i'm happy to report it's not. the 135 babies and children here are all safe. for now. they still have know protection. there are still no haitian cops stationed outside this orphanage. in fact there are very few cops on the streets of port-au-prince at all, another sign of the almost total collapse of the haitian government. all three branches of the govern
with the united states house of representatives. any use of the closed-captioned coverage of the house proceedings for political or commercial purposes is expressly prohibited by the u.s. house of representatives.] the speaker: the house will be in order. the prayer will be offered by our chaplain, father coughlin. chaplain coughlin: almighty god , true humility will not automatically come to us when we choose to bow our heads in prayer or when we acknowledge our since and shortcomings. more often we are most humbled when overwhelming circumstances far exceed our control or natural disasters or human events surprise us. lord, the horrific tragedy of biblical proportions in haiti has deeply touched us all. at the same time, this island community is called forth a flood of compassionate prayer and created a mighty forest of coordinating resources, personal generosity and heroic action. grant wisdom, prudence and fortitude to rescue workers, medical teams and caretakers who deliver aid and supplies. your mighty presence is known, lord, when true poverty casts a fresh light on another's wealth. when t
a series of recalls and stopped the united states sales and production of eight popular models after reports of instances in which the gas pedal became stuck and caused the car to race out of control. >> in developing news, another recall from a japan automaker, honda. laura ingle is live with that. which model are effected? >> we're talking about 646,000 models of the compact car fit. we have a picture to show you. what we're talking about here is the 2007-2008 model. if you have a 2009 or 2010 you're reportedly okay. it's a massive recall that will send a lot of honda owners double checking their make and model. the honored recall involves overheating issues. driver's side master power window switch. it reportedly can overheat causing a fire when it comes into content with excessive liquid. honda says an example would be heavy rain. there have been seven reported incidents. >> shepard: what should owners do if they have a fit? >> keep a close eye on the driver's side door switch. recall is voluntary, we're hearing from honda that drives are not being advised to bring cars to dealer
of the other agencies that are dealing with this unbelievable human tragedy. >>> the united states government has launched a massive recovery effort. america is doing the heavy lifting to help our neighbor. for more, let me bring in senator robert menendez. he chairs the foreign relations subcommittee that oversees u.s. aid. senator menendez, nice tough with us tonight. >> thank you, ed. and i wish it was a different -- a different topic we would be discussing. absolutely, sir. i know these are tough times. urgently what do we need to do as america right now? what do they have to have? they have to have everything, we are rebuilding a country right now, but as this relief effort has taken place what strikes you at this hour? >> well, at first, let me just say thoughts and prayers are with the haitian people and their families. many here in new jersey and throughout the united states. and what we are doing in the first instance, this is search and rescue, still with the hope and aspiration of saving lives. and those who are under the rubble, those who maybe trapped, as well as taking care of t
's name was the reason no one realized he had a visa to enter the united states which should have set alarm bells ringing. according to this official, one letter was dropped from mr. abdulmutallab's name when an employee cross-checked his name against a government database. this happened back on november 20th. had mr. abdulmutallab's name been entered correctly, officials apparently would have seen that he was classified as a possible terrorist and then the fact that he also had a visa to enter the united states would have kicked him over into what they call a 3-b classification. a 3-b classification would have kept him from boarding the plane. one letter in his name. the fact that the failures in this case have been narrowed down to that level of detail gives you some idea of how intense the security reviews have been over the last few days. in his remarks today, president obama also vowed to redouble u.s. efforts to defeat al qaeda. >> here at home we will strengthen our defenses, but we will not succumb to a siege mentality that sacrifices the open society and liberties and values
prison suits. they're on $10,000 bail. >> bugging the new orleans office of a united states senator? what in heavens name do they think they'll pick up in one of these ridiculous offices? it's not even in washington, d.c. >> what was liddy trying to find out back in '72? you had the same reaction then. >> why would you bug the democratic national committee? they all blab their heads off to everybody in sight. it's ridiculous. we're hearing from david, we hope the right wing covers this. i'm sure the right wing will give this a little more coverage than the left wing gave the a.c.o.r.n. scandal. >> let me -- >> listen, i tell you, there was an office if they were going to bug, if they were going to continue with the theme they started with, it should be david vitter. you go after somebody down in louisiana who has a known problem using phones, particularly. then you go after david vitter. >> people are getting in the spirit. everybody's watching this picture of this guy with his pretend prostitute. here we go. listen to this. a conservative activist who posed as a pimp to target the commun
sense of energy that you always have at this time, just before the president of the united states comes in and speaks before the entire u.s. congress. the difference now is that that electricity has a sense of uncertainty in it, a big sense of uncertainty, and anxiety among democrats who didn't think that they would have this much anxiety this early in an election year but i got to tell you, still the overwhelming sense, even more than a week after the election in massachusetts is a sense of shock among democrats, and that is the kind of audience predominantly that the president is going to be facing here. ed was talking about health care. we know that that is in dire straights. all day long democratic leaders trying to figure out how to salvage that and jobs, what everybody wants to hear the president talk about. when it comes to the senate because they don't have that 60-vote majority anymore, we're already hearing that they're trying to scale back that, and maybe from their perspective, call the republicans' bluff a little bit and try to put forward some of the issues that they think
strikes me so strongly about that, to suggest that the president of the united states would then come out and try to use this in some domestic political sense and was somehow favoring -- i'm not sure of the logic, he favored the 500,000 dead in haiti over the one bomber injured in detroit in some way. i'm not following it. >> it makes no sense. and, you know, aren't we all appalled that our president would mount a rescue effort to try to save thousands, tens of thousands, maybe hundreds of thousands of people who are either dying right now or who will die in the next few days if they don't get help? you know, shame on the president for trying to alleviate that suffering and prevent those deaths. it's just a ridiculous thing to say. and i hope even his audience of dittoheads realizes that. >> you are dittoing naked, mad, insanity, and racism. eugene robinson, pulitzer prize-winning columnist of "the washington post," and also of msnbc, always a relief to talk to you under these circumstances. >> it's good to talk to you, except under bad circumstances. >> thank you, sir. that's "countdown.
that is a business model. it is bad for the long-term interest of a sustainable united states economy. the agenda here has to be to revive investment. reward bankers that are lending money and helping our manufactures, our entrepreneurs, are small businesses, create jobs and generate wealth. >> representative welch, thank you so much. governor, thank you as well. i can see you nodding. that is it for us. i'm dylan. up next, "hardball." >> earthquake in haiti. good evening. i'm chris matthews in washington. here is what we know at this hour. bodies are piling up in the streets of port-au-prince. haiti's prime minister says hundreds of thousands of people may be dead. the haitian president says he has heard 30,000 to 50,000 people may be dead. there is no true casualty figure yet. haiti is the poorest country in the western hemisphere and the damage from the earthquake is widespread. the quake flattened the palace the roman catholic cathedral the main prison and hospitals and schools in the capital. president obama pledged an all-out rescue and humanitarian effort. >> i have directed my administrat
. the people of haiti will have the full support of the united states in the urgent rescue of those trapped beneath the rubble, to deliver humanitarian relief, food, water and medicine haitians will need in the coming days. >>> secretary of state hillary clinton is returning to washington to continue her relief effort. the agencies is headed by a fella named rajiv shah. let's go to the head of salvation army who is joining us by skype. i've been in touch to you tonight so far, bob. give us a sense of being there in haiti, in the capital city, in the midst of all of that hell tonight. >> well, it's a very ominous place to be, to be honest with you. storm clouds just rolled in a little while ago. it's keeping us on our edge and it's a fairly nervous place to be tonight. >> have the relief efforts arrived at all? >> we are on the edge of that. we would know. we have team and supplies arriving tomorrow. that will help us to begin the distribution of resources to the haitian people. >> again, i asked you about this a couple of hours ago. i think everyone needs to know how bad the plight is in ha
that secretary of state hillary clinton is in fact heading back to the united states with some 50 americans on board. you will remember our coverage earlier here on fox, the u.s. coast guard in fact flying her in on one of the aircraft this afternoon where she was to meet with the president of haiti and the prime minister. bringing aid to embassy workers in need of food and water and more aid to haiti. now we're getting word that the secretary of state hillary clinton leaving haiti, so a short visit there and taking some 50 americans with her. the mite of generosity will be bound by two former commander in chiefs. president clinton and president bush accepting the invitation to lead private measure and president obama saying the enlistment of his predecessor is inspired by the success of the relief effort after the 2004 tsunami that struck asia. clinton and g.h.w. bush headed that. despite the haiti tragedy, president bush and clinton today also focussing on the country's future prospects. >> there is just an unbelievable spirit amongst the haitian people. while the earthquake destroyed a l
for all international relief efforts headed to the earthquake zone. today the united states air force landed with pallets of supplies but help cannot arrive quickly enough and can't get inland quickly enough. 65 french rubble clearing specialists and sniffer dogs landed this morning. their knowledge will be invaluable but think about it, a minimum of tens of thousands of buildings are on the ground a minimum of tens of thousands of people are dead. the government is now estimating upwards of a quarter million dead people potentially. i mean relief effort looks beautiful and thank god for them but the task at hand. in addition, china, belgium, spain, three dozen countries are on the ground. bill hemmer is watching it all. what a busy spot that's been, billy. >> it has, shepard. the food and water you talk about with steve harrigan is not coming. we've been here the better part of 9 1/2 hours and this airport over the past two hours slowed down considerably. i fully expect the when we arrived at daybreak today we would see the pallets of water and food but it hasn't happened yet. i say
that are due here, bound here for the united states and, of course, also that intelligence review under way to take into account all of the different agencies and, david, they're all going to meet here tuesday in the situation room after the president returns from his vacation. the president is going to hear from them in person individually. david? >> speaking of the situation room, people may be confused. when we report on events, this bombing in pakistan, 40 killed at a volleyball tournament, how does information go from the situation room to the president? is there somebody who essentially represents the situation room with the president in hawaii, who keeps the president up to speed? >> reporter: the president has a full complement of staff with him in hawaii. of course another entity that has come under fire here was created after 9/11 by an upshot of the committee recommendations, the national terrorism center, that is supposed to assimilate all the information and connect the dots, a phrase we're hearing again in the last few days as we heard after 9/11. all the information we're tal
of that country. as the united states an others make inroads routing out terrorists from afghanistan and elsewhere, they are finding a safe haven in yemen. john brennan, that individual you just saw there on "meet the press," he is the advisor here at the white house on homeland security. he had more to say about that incident and the larger terror threat this morning on "meet the press." >> clearly the system didn't work on that day because abdulmutallab should never have gotten on that plane with those explosives. every other day the system worked so far this year. we've thwarted attempts. but clearly the president wants to make sure we strengthen the system. it is not that the system is broken but clearly there are ways to improve and strengthen the system to make sure we put together various bits and pieces of information in a way that allows us to stop every single terrorist out there. >> reporter: david, the point has been made on some of these morning shows, "meet the press" principally, that in this case we're talking about the failure of the intelligence agency to share information. well,
's "washington post" detailed the extent to which the united states missteps in yemen allowed al qaeda to expand and grow there as well. this super focused 9/12 mentality that conservatives now say we need to return to also wasn't able to capture the perpetrators of 9/11. as we learned incidentally from last week's suicide bombing that killed seven cia officers in khost, afghanistan, we are still looking for osama bin laden and ayman al zawahiri. the jordanian double agent recruited by the cia was brought in to help u.s. officials find zawahiri 8 1/2 years after our super focused 9/12 mentality. the danger in these bush policies being romanticized and retroactively impud with efficacy they didn't have is gwei may put those failed policies in place again. today we heard president obama announce a new program for screening passengers coming into the united states. >> as of yesterday, the transportation security administration, or tsa, is requiring enhanced screening for passengers flying into the united states from or flying through nations on our list of state sponsors of terrorism or other count
, is multinational and not solely the united states of america. >> neil: very well put. secretary ridge, very good to see you. >> good talking with you. thank you. >> it's not just the elderly hurting from the disaster in port-au-prince right now. jonathan hunt is at an orphanage where the struggle with simply to get out. >> reporter: neil this is a desperate situation here at the house of the children of god orphanage. we first came here yesterday, first reported on the desperate situation, 26 babies in the back of a truck. their only home, their only shelter. no form larks nothing. they were giving them regular milk which causes diarrhea in young children. that adds to the danger of dehydration. there in all 135 children here. this is the ridiculous thing. listen to this, 120 of them have already been legally adopted by united states families. families right across america. this girl, for instance, i have lynn, this one here, she's been adopted by a family in nebraska. bilu has been adopted by kim harmon, the harmon family in texas. all they need to get out of here, neil, is a yes from the state
. this is not a green light for haitians to try to get to the united states now. keep in mind, their country is devastated. so it's a prospect that has a whole lot of possibility to try to improve their lives. but the secretary of homeland security saying do not try to get into the united states because tps will not apply to you if you arrive in the united states post-earthquake, you will be detained and you will be sent back to haiti. for the estimated 1 to 200,000 haitian nationals who had no legal documentation basically living here illegally for the past number of years, those people will be allowed now to stay. they can get driver's licenses, they can get work visas and they can enjoy some assistance from the federal government. but instead of having to rely on their family and friends for support and money, hoping they can turn something in and maybe tps will be granted and waiting for the eventuality of being deported has come to a halt, at least for the next 18 months when it will come up for renewal or dismissal. >> we had a state representative from florida on the air here within t
not on the no-fly list. >>> new rules went into effect for travelers flying to the united states from overseas. all passengers from or traveling through 14 countries considered high-risk are to receive full body patdowns and have their carry-on luggage opened and inspected. let's bring in tom costello. the new rules took into effect today. you were detailing how intense the security was, even yourself patted down head to toe. >> i was coming in from brussels, not on the list of countries that are considered high-risk. but nonetheless, perhaps an indication of what you can expect if you're traveling from one of those countries or even with enhanced security in europe. they did a patdown from my shoulder to my toes and around my waist. they had my open up my belt. the officer literally took his hands and felt inside my jeans around my waist, only my waist, but checking to see if i was wearing anything there. once we were on the flight the captain turned off the map about halfway across the atlantic ocean and 25 minutes or so before landing, all seat belts were secured and nobody was allowed to g
that scott brown is the winner of the massachusetts united states senate race. again, this is an ap projection. the associated press projecting that scott brown is the winner of the massachusetts senate race to replace the late ted kennedy. again, this is an ap projection. norah o'donnell has confirmed martha coakley has called scott brown to concede the race. we're here in doyle's cafe in jamaica plains cafe. the results are not coming as a surprise to anyone who's been paying attention throughout the day. as america tries to absorb the news that democrats have lost ted kennedy's senate seat to the republican party. the next thing people are going to be doing is learning who this republican is, who has taken this seat from a democratic party that appeared remarkably complacent in terms of holding on to the seat. joining us now is editor of the boston globe. i want to thank you for coming on the show tonight, appreciate your time. >> thank you. >> let me ask you first for your reaction to the big headline. the associated press has projected scott brown as the winner. what does this
of more attacks on the united states and praises suspected terrorist u man farouk abdulmutallab, calling him, quote, a hero fighter. the white house says it cannot confirm as of yet the awe thoantivity of this tape we will be live at the white house with the latest. good morning, molly. >> reporter: the tape is not authenticated but officials tell us there's never been a fake tape from the terrorist leader, a u.s. official tells us that osama bin laden appears to be trying to attach himself to the underwear bombing operation, calling suspect u man farouk abdulmutallab a hero. al-qaeda in the arabian peninsula took responsibility for that bombing on christmas day, but the intelligence community doesn't think that the central al-qaeda group necessarily gives orders to al-qaeda in the arabian peninsula, that they may have shared ideology but they don't necessarily cooperate tactically. now, in the tape, bin laden also says that america can never dream of living in peace unless there is peace in palestine. >> it is unfair that you enjoy a safe life while our brothers in gaza suffer greatly.
confirmed publicly that the united states would no longer release guantanamo bay prisoners of yemeni doesn't back to their homeland. >> make no mistake, we will fix anything that has damaged our interests and recruit. >> i'll ask a member of the 9/11 commission why so many of their recommendations have gone unheeded. that coming up. >>> moving to afghanistan, the suicide bomber who killed seven cia officers at an american military base. the terrorist was a double agent, and tonight we have new details on how he managed to slip through security. >> this is a jordanian doctor, one former senior u.s. intelligence official says he was providing very important information on some very high-level targets. >> the double agent was brought onto the cia base in afghanistan without first being given a polygraph test, one of the basic tools in establishing a spy's trustworthiness. he had provided bona fide information. a u.s. intelligence official says there was still questions about his reliability and the access he claimed to have through senior al qaeda leaders. >> he had already been to the base a
the full support of the united states and the urgent effort to help those trapped beneath the rubble and to help with the humanitarian relief. in that effort, our government is specially usaid and the departments of state and offense are working closely together and with our partners are haiti, the region, and around the world. >> this is the worst earthquake to hit haiti in 200 years. joining me now from the state department is spokesman p.j. crowley. i'm sure americans are wondering if there's going to be international help here. what kind of communication has taken place between the state department and other countries in this massive relief effort? >> well, support for haiti is already an international effort with the united nations and assets from a number of countries. the united states and others will continue to flow systems to haiti. as rapidly as we can get it there for the united states we have put on the ground an assessment team, what are the priorities as we move through the next couple of days. as the president has said, our usaid administrator said, our focus is savin
a chance to pick up four to six seats in the united states senate. i now think the republicans have a chance to pick up between five and eight seats. they've already picked up two. they've picked up massachusetts and then i gotta tell you if there's a candidate poised for victory it's replacing dorgan. we lead in five other seas in the senate. this could be an earthquake this fall. i'm sort of cautious about these things but it is looking like rather rather than taking 20, 22 house seats we could take more. >> sean: the question i've been asking everybody this week, give bill clinton credit he will be shocked if he is watching to hear me say that he did pivot. he did change. he did move the era of big government is over. the end of welfare as we know it. there's been no evidence that i have seen in barack obama's past or this first year in office that shows any signs of moderation. do you think co-pivot, change, moderate, move to the right, move to the center? do you see him capable of it? >> yeah, look any president can sort of gauge the situation. people get elected president gene
about the airport situation. we know that aid is here in the united states. people are ready to bring in supplies. can they even land at the airport? >> that's one of the difficulties here. the airport luckily infrastructure wise is okay. the runways are okay. the problem is the control tower suffered damage and there's also an air traffic control issue as well. flights on a limited basis can get in there. that's good news the airports weren't damaged and they saved many people. military flights can most likely get in there. remember, there's a danger because you can military helicopters, relief helicopters, small planes in the area with very limited air traffic control. you don't want to see some kind of air disaster over port-au-prince where more people are killed. so the airport is open. the u.n. says the airport is operating but on a very limited basis at this point. >> jeff rossen, thank you very much. >> much of haiti's national palace has been flattened. again the palace was considered one of the sturdiest buildings in port-au-prince. at the top before the quake hit on the bott
osama bin laden blaming the united states and others for global warming. the voice is apparently calling for the world to boycott american goods and stopping, quote, the wheels of the american economy. nbc has not been able to verify if the voice is, in fact, bin laden's. >>> also developing now there is a growing chance that the obama administration may move the trial of mastermind of 9/11 out of manhattan. they announced khalid shaikh mohammed and others would be tried just blocks from the world trade center, not too far from here. at first new york city mayor michael bloomberg supported the plan but he changed his mind this week. >> the federal government could find a site that didn't cost a billion dollars, which using downtown will, and it will also impact traffic and commerce and people's lifestyles downtown and it would be great if we didn't do it. >> that prompted three other hig high-profile new york democrats, senators charles schumer, gillibrand to make their concerns public. last night a justice department official told nbc news that it is looking into contingency plans. we'l
, japan, britain and the united states shutter their embassies citing terrorist threats. >> u.s. officials tell cnn eight al qaeda suspects were planning to bomb the embassy. we're told yemeni forced killed three and captured one more wearing a suicide vest, but four other suspected terrorists remain at large. >> we see global implications from the war in yemen and the ongoing efforts by al qaeda in yemen. >> we're told that 200 to 300 al qaeda are living in yemen, but when we asked people today about how they feel about al qaeda taking root. >> we hate al qaeda. >> they had all hear that terror suspect umar farouk abdulmutallab studied arabic here. the school's director now believes that abdulmutallab used arabic studies as a cover. >> he was the top in the class. >> officials complain that identifying would-be terrorists among students is nearly impossible here, because the government can't compete with al qaeda. >> we're going to have a whole lot more tonight on the terrorist threat in yemen. we'll bring you a special investigation into the radical cleric hiding out in yemen who could b
. >> the people of haiti will have the full support of the united states in the urgent effort to rescue those trapped beneath the rubble. and to deliver the humanitarian relief, the food, water, and medicine that haitians will need in the coming days. >> by dawn, the president received three briefings on the earthquake. by mid-morning he placed coordination for relief efforts the head of the u.s. agency for international development. >> it's a significant effort and we're committed to doing everything we can. >> with the government buildings in haiti destroyed and a frantic search for survivors underway, the u.s. accounted for all 172 embassy employees. eight americans were wounded, four critically, who are now receiving treatment after being airlifted off the island. the next task assess the needs of 45,000 u.s. citizens living and working in haiti. the damage assessment teams and rescue squads arrived late today. the immediate u.s. goals reopen the airport and the ports vital to moving supplies in and refugees out. in a phone interview with fox, humanitarian aid worker described the quake's

that was -- we were able to help. >> a global response led by the united states. as american survivors jam the airport, desperate to get out, one graduate student with nbc's kerry sanders. >> i -- i was hoping i would die quickly instead of slowly, because i was stuck. but then they got me out. >> president obama mobilizes his cabinet, saying this is one of those moments that call out for american leadership. and he had this message to the people of haiti. >> to the people of haiti, be we say clearly and with conviction, you will not be foresaken. you will not be forgotten. in this, your hour of greatest need, america stands with you. the world stands with you. >> but with no power or communication, the people of haiti cannot see or hear him. >> nbc news has learned mr. obama has called former president george w. bush to team up with bill clinton and work on relief effort. secretary of state hillary clinton after canceling her trip to the pacific flew back overnight to washington. >> we are expecting, you know, a great number of fatalities and serious injuries. we know it's going to be in
position to be in as president of the united states. tomorrow night he has to say to the american people, you made the right bet. >> i agree. coming out of that he could be like bill clinton in 1995. he could show the country he really got the message that was delivered. >> both sides need to show we've learned a lesson, when we screwed up, when we were in large we blew it. >> wait for governor mcdonald to announce the republican party and eight years of horrendousness. >>> thank you. join us tomorrow night with a preview of the state of the union. lots of information to give you before the speaks right here on msnbc. >>> right now it is time for "the ed show" with ed schultz. >>> good evening, americans, and welcome to the ed show tonight, live from the nation's capital. hitting my hot buttons tonight. the white house is making a huge deal about a spending freeze. do you really think the middle class families care about that right now? or is it a job? >>> the fake pimp who brought down a.c.o.r.n. just got busted by the fbi for trying to wiretap senator mary landrieu's office in louisian
>> but that's about method and to personally attack the president of the united states, it looks like he's rooting against obama, rooting against the sitting president who is commander in chief. we have top understand that the vice president of the united states told a big fat lie. he's not telling the truth. he's emboldening the terrorist. i know that's a serious charge but look at what he's doing. he's saying that our president is weak, letting down our guard. a talk show host, fine, say anything you want. >> former vice president you don't say that. that emboldens terrorist. >> what's the proper move to hand they will if you're in the white house? what do you do to fight this sfwhak. >> i think the proper move is to absolutely call dick cheney on every lie. barack obama has done more in pakistan, stepping up the fight in yemen, since then doubled the support for yemen and trying to get rid of the unnecessary aggravation by closing down gitmo. the president is being irresponsible. >> gentlemen, good to have your take on this tonight. appreciate your time again. i've asked the a
. where would this country be without the help of the united states? up to 7000 troops said to be in the area by today, while 300,000 homeless haitians await their arrival. our coverage continues here in haiti, also with me today, high colleagues, path i ann brown and gregg jarrett. gregg: we'll check in with you momentarily, i'm gregg jarrett. patti ann: i'm path i ann brown. a deadly attack in afghanistan near the presidential palace and dramatic new developments in the massachusets senate battle, a new poll suggesting a big shift. and panic by some washington democrats, worry that the massachusets battle will derail their health care overall. we'll detail the 11th hour plan to avoid that. gregg: first, let's begin with bill hemmer in port-au-prince, haiti, where the situation is evolving minute by minute. bill? bill: yeah, gregg, good morning again, we're back the a the airport on this monday, the last time we were here has been friday so it's been three days and what a difference three days makes, the u.s. military is ramped up in a serious and significant way as these g
government, the united states government, by $1.9 trillion. and as the senator from new hampshire very well pointed out, we are looking at deficits now into the forseeable future that exceed $1 trillion. in fact, it doesn't look like for the ten-year window that we do budgeting here in the united states senate that we're ever going to have a year where we don't have a deficit somewhere in the $1 trillion range. we looked at a $1.4 trillion last year, looking at another $1.2 trillion deficit for this year. at some point we just keep racking up more and more debt that gets passed on to future generations and future taxpayers. and as the senator from new hampshire pointed out, admission into the european union, there are a couple of key thresholds. one is debt as a percentage of g.d.p., which is 60%, is the threshold for admission into the european union. and deficits to g.d.p., which is about 3%, and as he also pointed out very effectively, we are at thresholds here in this country which exceed dramatically the deficit the to g.d.p. threshold that wouldn't even allow us to get into the europe
back to the united states with her when she leaves. according to the state department, more than 1,000 americans have been evacuated from haiti back to the united states. in addition, 200 haitian earthquake survivors have been brought for treatment to dover air force base in delaware. and in a really significant move today, the obama administration announced that an estimated 200,000 haitians who are currently living in the united states illegally, they have been granted temporary protected status. that allows them to stay here for the next 18 months. >>> but the big story on the ground in haiti tonight appears to be the growing frustration with the lack of aid getting to people in the streets. a senior defense official telling nbc news tonight that the ineffectiveness of the police presence in haiti now is becoming a real concern. according to this unnamed official, again speaking with nbc news, u.s. soldiers with the 82nd airborne division will be tasked with security when the situation there deteriorates. again, according to this official, in his words, it's not if the situation
months i have managed four major pieces of legislation through the united states congress, served as chair and acting chair of two major senate committees placing me at the center of the two most important issues of our time, health care and reform of financial services. i lost a beloved sister in july and in august ted kennedy. i battled cancer over the summer and in the midst of all of this, found myself in the toughest political shape of my career. >> you know, todd harris, it is a weird, strange world when a guy like chris dodd has to leave politics because of poll numbers and someone on your side of the aisle named david vitter who got caught with prostitutes, sex workers in washington and in his home state of louisiana and he's headed towards re-election. explain the thinking of the voters? could it be they vote on symptoms and are more angry about what is affecting them personally rather than what politicians are up to in their hanky panky world. >> i'm not from louisiana. >> explain his survival. >> he hasn't survived. >> he is headed toward it. >> he has a better connecti

really meant. but again it's this question of how do we handle people who try to attack the united states. it does sound more like what we think of as war. and that's their concern. there was this extraordinary scene at the arraignment today. it looked almost like a war zone, if you will. there was a security perimeter. there was a watch tower. so it's not how our criminal justice system is really equipped to work. can we do it sometimes? yeah. but if this becomes a routine thing, it's really going to stretch our justice systis tis. >> michael, follow up on your answer to alex using the phrase the war on terror. i'm not sure how i follow if that makes us any difference. how does it make us any safer if the president uses war on terror or war on al qaeda or war on hamas? >> as i said, i actually criticized both presidents. i think president bush called everything the war on terror, including the war in iraq, which dominated his whole administration. and in my view, that war had nothing to do with the war on terrorism. on the other hand, i think to put your head in the hand and not call maj

to speculate. >> if there are no guarantees that they'll be treated up to the standards that the united states believes -- >> i don't want to get into a public back and forth on something. we're just not going to discuss it. >> mr. brennan himself said they were in the custody of the yemeni government. is that still true, robert? >> i told christy the other day, i'm not going to get into that here. >> robert gibbs, briefing from the white house. he said, of course, the disappointing job numbers are something to take into account and said that the president will simply have his statement, no questions to be taken, when he talks about the economy in the next hour. right now on "andrea mitchell reports," president obama tries to pivot to the economy in the wake of another negative monthly jobs report. >>> labor secretary coming up this hour. >>> all eyes on the first public appearance of christmas day terror suspect, umar farouk abdulmutallab is in a courthouse, awaiting arraignment. we'll have a live report. >>> what is the political fallout from the president's administration's report on the in
of action or get some sort of help in taking action against the united states? >> yeah. the saudis are very concerned about this, and it's one of the features of the area, nobody even knows exactly where the border is. some of the successes we've had have been through the saudis for taking this issue very seriously, trying to crack down on movement across the border, but it's even bigger than that because as you know there's also -- yemen is on the coast, the red seacoast, and there's all kinds of movement back and forth between yemen and the horn of africa. so it's a very difficult problem to contain, very porous borders, bad actors going back and forth, you name it, it's just a big problem. >> and mike viqueira mentioned the instability of the yemeni government there. how concerned are u.s. officials about the ability to -- of the yemen government to essentially crack down itself, or maybe even the inability to be able to take the resources of the united states and put them to good use in their own country? >> yeah. unfortunately, the central government controls the capital sana and that'
for them if he gets in the united states senate? he has no plan when it comes to health care. he wants to be like the rest of the jokers in the republican party and just be an obstructionist, say no to everything, start all over, of course. he wants to be the 41st vote against health care. now that's not what this election should be about. ted kennedy's wife, vicki, put it perfectly. >> ted always said, elections are about the future. they're about moving forward. they're about taking action. they're not about saying no. >> you know, that is so to the point. would you go out and vote because "i just don't like the way things are!" or would you go out and vote because you know what direction your candidate is going to take and what the agenda is going to be? saying no, saying no is what the republicans have done all year, it is what scott brown is going to do, be in lockstep with the mitch mcconnells of this world. they're all about destroying barack obama and change in washington. massachusetts, we're headed in the right direction with president obama's agenda. it is a heavy lift. but
the al-qaeda in the arabian pen lanes and what its future may be in the united states and the letter reads in part it appears the decision not to thoroughly interrogate abdulmutallab was made by you and other senior officials in the department justice. moreover those with knowledge of this decision have said they are concerned with certain aspects of it without prior approval from your department, so the top senate republican is saying he wants some transparency in this decision, he wants to know who made the decision, the rationale for that decision, and i find it interesting they wants to know why the fbi director apparently is being prevented from discussing it fully with members of congress. jane catherine, i understand you spoke to a former fbi agent who's raising the question what about the quality of this information that abdulmutallab provided? >> reporter: this is the story i've been trying to get at for some time and i think today i've finally been able to. based on what i've heard from my contacts we know that abdulmutallab was severely burned, and i was told that after he
